The Leica X2 is a magnificently crafted camera. Made in Germany, the X2 has a 36mm equivalent f2.8 lens which is perfect for street photography. The 16 Megapixel APS-C sensor and enhanced Autofocus mean sharp pictures with low noise, while RAW file shooting makes sure you have plenty of editing leeway.

This is all contained in a pocket-sized camera that you can take anywhere.
The Leica X2 is the perfect camera for anyone with a passion for photography in its purest form. This includes the photographer who works under the pseudonym Hoveeto, who has lived in Paris since the age of five. His greatest passion is capturing the cultural diversity of his home city, in which he finds new inspiration every day.
Outstanding image quality
